Unfortunately, the current goal for Qgis is releasing 
three times per year (!) which implies that I seriously doubt
we have any possibility to release a practically useful qgis version 
in stable, any time from now. This has been a chronic problem 
with qgis for years, but now it has become a certainty.

The most useful package for that is a roll-on package as provided by 
jef in qgis.org under those regards (which is indeed broken from time
to time and not always available for stable).

I often need to build from scratch using the source package, which
is sub-optimal under any regards. And I do not take in consideration
problems in packaging quality and policy compliance here...

Myabe, we should consider to release qgis for main architectures only 
to reduce problems due to building on exotic platforms (for qgis and its 
long list of deps).
